Martin Kabrhel Scoops €100k WSOPE Super High Roller for €2,624,340

Martin Kabrhel walked off with the WSOPE SHR €100k title today at the Kings Casino in Rozvadov, the last man standing after a high-octane, high-stakes race to the gold bracelet and the €2.6million top prize on offer…

Michael Addamo came back for the 3rd and final day with hopes of repeating his success in the €25k event a few days ago, but those hopes were quickly dashed when he fell at the first hurdle to a flopped set of kings, Adrian Mateos following him out the door shortly afterwards.

With so much at stake, the double KO which accounted for both Jan-Eric Schwippert and Dominik Nitsche was a cooler of epic proportions – the shortish-stacked pair getting it all-in only to find local Czech favourite Martin Kabrhel turn over pocket aces, while they revealed… a pair of pocket queens each!

Down to four and one of the players of the year, Belarus high-stakes tournament crusher, Mikita Badziakouski, would be next to hit the rail – walking off with a massive €789,612 to ease the pain.

This left David Peters and Julian Thomas sitting equal in chips with 70million, Kabrhel a bit behind, and the title far from decided – but as Peters started to move away from the other pair it was German pro Thomas who would take a chance – and run his sixes into the American’s eights, departing in third for a huge €1,116,308.

The end when it came was almost a classic race between two even stacks, Peters’ big slick off facing down the pocket sixes of the Czech pro, but the money only going all-in when the flop showed another six – Peters having to be content with 2nd place and €1,621,960 while Kabrhel added €2,624,340 ($2,993,112) to his $4million + in tournament earnings.
